There are plenty of reasons to throw a springtime soirée, whether it’s to welcome the warmer weather or celebrate Easter or Mother’s Day. Brooke & Lou, founded by Bria Hammel of Bria Hammel Interiors in Minneapolis, has an assortment of new tasteful tableware options that are sure to bring an effortless ambiance to your gatherings of every size. (After all, a garden party never goes out of style.)
Raspberry lemonade, cucumber mint water, or a sweet sangria are refreshing companions to a light brunch or afternoon celebration. Crystal clear, ornate glassware will showcase the bright colors of these drinks, so be sure to peruse the Juliska Isabella collection of elegant glassware— adorned with designs of berries that mirror the sweetness of spring.
Set the scene with tableware accessories that give a nod to the season. Add a touch of whimsy to your place settings with Nantucket Basket Hand Towels and delicate Cambria Melamine dinnerware. Complement these selections with white and neutral accents like the Everyday Placemat, allowing your guests’ focus to be on the colors and flavors of the incredible food and drink you’ve prepared.
One of the best parts of a garden party-style gathering is that meals can be light, easy to prepare, and still immensely pleasing to guests. Sit your family and friends around an assortment of breakfast pastries or a charcuterie board, perfect for sampling and sharing a bit of everything. Serve sweet salads topped with strawberries and nuts with the collection’s Acrylic Salad Servers. For a seasonal touch, pass around an assortment of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries in a classic White Stoneware Berry Bowl Set. All available at brookeandlou.com.
